"marianne rivera" Discussed on Jay Bird Watching

"We're self looks like a bunch of idiots being at the Ballpark at so in beers out of the field potentially harming people and then having the craziness of one player Elvis andrus making three errors in the same any bases loaded a run scored off of Donaldson Little Naegler. That barely went over doors head and then. Bautisa doing what he did. I just I don't know if there's GonNa be another moment like I'm less. Maybe a game winner like Kawhi Leonard. Shot would probably be very close to that for winning the series of Philadelphia if not on the same level I let them into the shot against but he is baffling. But I don't know it. There's a lot of words but also at the same time no words that can describe that game it was here in San Chaos but I can tell you both the partying afterwards. Went well into the night like I wanNA say four or five in the morning then you remember it I do. I do remember a crowd-pleasing pleasing home run. And then I don't remember. We went to bar close by Fox and Phil. That's right across the street but had some drinks there and then we went to another place to watch the end of the royals Mastro's to be like are you gonNa be home against the Astros if they win For Friday night L. Theatrically go on the road. Kansas City Kansas City. And we know how that ended blue. Yeah who? That's a good word so corsair before I tell my random story to listeners about my evening during the bat flip is a little different than Brennan's so we'll go. Give us your two cents in The what has become more or less this generation's Dzhokhar home run. Yes so what I was saying before that I ranked them. This was a close. Second for me The reason why wasn't ever won the world series wasn't one I think that's just what literally put it over the top but I think running you vocalizing. It perfectly like you. You said that this is sort of your Dzhokhar moment and you were lucky. Enough to be there live. And I think that's true for a lot of Blue Jays fans now because this definitely like there's there's sort of like I don't want to say a a a polarity but certain segments of fans that like those that could appreciate the Carter home run when it happened and those that could appreciate the Batista home runs when it happened because there were just so eerily similar almost to the placement of where the home run went. it's very very similar But for me it's Kinda like you will never ever ever forget where you were what you were doing where you were sitting who you were with. How what you were wearing like little intricate detail during that home run. I remember like everything. And what what amazes me is that and I've said this on twitter. That is by far the Best Sports Game. I've ever seen in my life because that entire all you need to do is watch the seventy. That's it all you need it in from the top to the bottom all you need is because as a blue jays fan seeing what happened in the seventh inning. I'm saying to myself. Of course this is how it ends. Of course this is what happens because I'm bluejays fan. Of course it has to be this weird obscure rule. That never happened ever and this is how it it goes to shit. This is how it happened because I'm a blue Jays Fan. I'm like if there was ever any hope lease let it come in the bottom of the seven and you're right the three. I think it was four three or four out that should have been. I think it was four. Four era in a row yeah like four Arizona role that should have been you get that little blue by Russell Martin and everything and then building up like it was a crescendo. Right into that home run. I remember jumping out of my couch. Rowing whatever had in my hand to the bookcase to my left screen. Like a whale which is coming out of my. I don't know what it was just like A. Yeah coming out of my mouth and just like falling to the ground in tears like a grown man crying in tears with my wife just celebrating. I was like this is the best sports moment of my life and that is why like we just had an episode in the south. Six podcast talking about like the shot versus this. I rank this over the shop. I really do like. This is the first time yes? This is the first time in a long time. Toronto sports has experienced at that time. And just the the whole build up in the drama that seventh inning balloonist. You couldn't have written better you you can't. You can't like just random rule that you just can't write that with the shot. I'm not trying to minimize it. But like a a buzzer beater shot with four boundaries. Yeah I can. I can kind of script that but with this like no. You do everything about this moment as the Blue Jays Fan and having Toronto sports finally experience some Moniker of success man. I will never forget that moment. So like yes. This is a close second to Carter but any bluejays fans that have grown up into this era. Buju stanhood I do not blame you. This is number one so I got to tell two stories here because I got to tell you the one for the Joe Carter. Homerun put it in perspective so I was a kid and my mom yelled at us to go to bed me and my brother being sent upstairs no more care. Who's playing go upstairs? I mean meanwhile. My Dad is a giant bluejays fan and soon as Ricky. Henderson walked to open up the inning. My Dad came up and he goes come with me. Something crazy is going to happen so we sit down with me. We sneak down in the basement to watch the game rather than the living room. And I'll transpires is one of the better memories. I have my dad jumping around the living room or in the basement you know does after the homerun celebrating and running around acting like we're on touching the basis. It was awesome stuff. And then I got flash forward to two thousand fifteen. I had the as far as my Phantom in general I had my phantom brought into question because not only did I have the Blue Jays playing in a elimination game for the first time in my adult life. I was also had paid way too much money to go see Motley crue for their last tour with Alice. Cooper and I was in buffalo so I'm watching the game with some friends at Pearl Street brewery right down the street from the from the arena. And it's time to go to the concert right after the Russell Martin. Toss so I'm all of a sudden freaking the hell out what's happening so I go. I'm full media blackout. I don't want anybody telling me I'm not talking to my friends. I'm just enjoying the concert. I drove all the way back from buffalo to Rochester New York with no phone on because I worked with Jay's journal at the time I was going to see if I turn my phone was Oh my God or it sucked either so I got all the way home turned on the. Tv's ID and passwords into the exact moment where the Russell Martin stuff started. Watched the whole bureau throwing incident and all the stuff and the Blue Jays guys trying to calm down the fans and everything and then watch the rest of the damn game when they hit that home. Run GUYS I literally flipped over my coffee table and screamed woke up my wife dogs barking it. Just it was insane. I like I said I. Even that delayed it was the same thing to me and I felt horrible that I wasn't watching the game when it happened the fact that I was able to preserve that moment and had that same reaction as everybody else did for my media blackout but it was just that that night will always be fresh in my memory. Is I got a great time at a concert. Got Drunk and then I got home and I got to see that and get drunk again. I dismay it ended up being an all nighter thing. I had the day off afterward. So it's good times but guys that is like I said probably the epitome of most Blue Jays fans especially new blue Jays fans just from the fact that the media four is so accessible for it and living it in. That was the tea that was the game that basically brought Blue Jays fans back but I bought my defense fellas. I bought those concert tickets like in June. When we sucked. So that was after the first eleven game win streak Actually I was before I think because oh I bought tickets the same day to go see Motley crue with Alice Cooper in Buffalo for the La- The the quote unquote final tour. And then I bought tickets to go to the Yankee series with and celebrate being. You know getting engaged with my wife. We went up Toronto for the weekend and ended up becoming at after. I'd bought those tickets months in advance that ended up being the weekend. That too low had that epic at Bat against Marielle Rivera there. Yeah I was there. That was my bachelor party weekend. I was there really nice. Yes we keep missing yeah You lost that game. But that was David Price. Start correct yet. So I was at the game and basically ended with troy to Lewinsky. Having like twenty twenty pitches against Marianne Rivera sitting on the third base line on those seats that are for the football configuration that rotate around underneath the arena. Like that. And they're all so you feel everything shaking underneath you. So yeah that was. That was crazy. Crazy Brent are Adam that you were there on that weekend because I was at the same weekend I was there two does not. Yeah I were there that the next day we lost that one too in the so was beating hot and then we're driving back and Astrada was pitching that third game and the Blue Jays won that and I was like of course the game. I'm not yeah. We ended up staying for the third game because we were. I was just disappointed after two games of losing. I'm like Okay Estrada's hell he's been insane. So let's stay for the next day and my wife and I ended up getting a chance to see the Blue Jays. Finally but that was the last that last series guys that year that we were rough after that all came together so so I get now we one home run talk up in round out the show here and that is the ED wing blast to push the Blue Jays out of the wild card game off a Baldo Jimenez so Adam. We had one script moment. Twenty fifteen. This couldn't have gotten any better with Leaving Zach Britton on the frigging sidelines. The Blue Jays and watching Edwin go blast. Thank you thank you thank you orioles. That was a pupil your meatball That heaven as gave up I just remember Orioles fans being like what is going on right now it was. It was amazing and you know..

"R. Lot APP Chris Brockman top of our number two the poll question news. What do you have over there which current M._l._b.? Player has the best chance to be unanimous hall of Famer of course Mary Veira Hall of fame election going into cooperstown this weekend. Mike Trout leased away sixty eight percent Albert holes twenty percent Clayton Kershaw a seven percent Miguel Cabrera for David Cone and our number one put his thumb on the scale for my trout and it's very difficult to to argue that but pool is is a no doubt about her right. I mean he's as good as <hes> of all time but Rivera is the first ever unanimous guy I ever and his cone said once that's been broken now. Maybe others can follow behind. I don't think jeeter is going to be by the way you delgiorno really. Why is that because there's a lot of jeeter hey out there and there's a lot of people thought he was overrated? The number and I'm not a huge Derek jeter guy but I don't know how you can argue with the five championships and three thousand to me to me when you but you know L. When voters say unanimous you've gotta be particularly in arguably the greatest to me. It's like when you vote is the guy a hall of Famer yes or no right and the the answer when jeeter's named comes of course is a hall of Famer. He deserves to be in the hall of fame. The thing is Marianne Rivera's the first unanimous player so by that measure. He's the greatest player in major league. I don't understand it was babe. Ruth not unanimous arisen Robinson Hank Aaron go on and on down the list and so <hes> you know <hes> when when you talk about jeeter's numbers the number of Red Sox fans that you know for instance the other day when when you talked about how Federer was one of the greats of all time unanimously liked the unanimously loved by everyone right and and you're like can you name anybody else like that and I had fun with you. I say Rivera jeeter judge. Just that's my way of kind of tweaking you with three Yankees and Rivera I do believe is universally. I mean the number of Red Sox fans..

"Address DP Dan Patrick dot com twitter handle at DP show as analytics continued to change in evolve the sport of baseball. One of the new trends is the devaluing the closer sabermetrics teams are rethinking the setup of their pitching staff. We've seen closers open a game this weekend. In cooperstown were going to be reminded of just how important that role can be or or used to being Marianna Rivera's the first unanimous choice for the hall of fame arguably the most important player on that Yankee Dynasty in the late nineties and even more than just ineffective pitcher like there was a psychological weapon about Canary Honor Rivera if you got to the eighth inning and you didn't get the Yankees you're in trouble because you knew that it was over once he came in longtime reliever Lee Smith will also be inducted this weekend. It's the first time to closers of ever gone in in the same year. Even if the analytics guys find a way to minimize their role closers have made a huge impact in baseball history especially Mary on a Rivera who's earned his distinction as one of the Great Hall of Famers of all time and there have been arguments arguments that people try to make four and against Marianna Rivera's the greatest pitcher of all time well. It's I think it's hard to categorize that because you have different eras is he the greatest pitcher pitcher of his era. Now we can have a conversation but also I would counter the argument by saying. Can you be the greatest pitcher and you weren't very good starter. He was great as a closer absolutely Trevor Hoffman off men was a starter. You've had a lot of failed starters who became relievers. Dennis Eckersley was a good starter. He became a hall of fame closer. If you have one pitch one inning you throw hard you have movement and you can be successful as a closer and you can go down the list of great closers or guys who had incredible seasons and a lot of these guys not necessarily great pitchers. You've had guys who've had these moments two or three years where you have a forty five fifty saves. I remember Bobby thigpen Bobby thigpen held the record there for a long time. He may still hold that record of fifty five saves. I think it is season but what is save how important is a save. What does this save mean in anymore and mclovin? You Love Your sabermetrics the save statistic. Where does it stand save? I'm not sure we're savings but opener is the neutron where you put as you mentioned the cl the guy you put the closer a good pitcher of I just to get the first in the other way and the raise e._R._A.. The Tampa raise has dropped unbelievably and they're really you know they're falling. I think they're faltering now but they're really good team so yeah. The cume named five closures most people. Can't I mean the the Mary Louise Smith by the end of any or maybe a couple more guys will get in but I don't think Kenley Jansen in these closures will make it well. I'm trying to think who is on that that rise to be a hall of Famer who is closer Craig Kimbrel was mentioned he was a free agent for awhile I know and maybe that told us everything we needed to know about the closer that it took him a while to get a job and now he had incredible numbers for what five or six six years and then all of a sudden L. couldn't get a job. Yeah pulling aroldis Chapman was started early in his career for the reds and you know he threw one hundred and they said he can't do that all the time and he's become. I'm not a top closer but amongst them. He used to be yeah now. You don't even hear his name actually had quietly at a good year because the Yankees keep winning so many game this. There's a guy named Kirby eight who's leading the League and saves with thirty one for San Diego. I feel like we don't know the relief pitchers anymore. We're used to know rollie fingers and and goose gossage because you know the the way the game was set up but you had closers who closed out a game would go three innings two innings and then it became really specialized that you were coming in and you were GonNa go one inning mclovin. Where is this a related argument? Martinez is getting in this year so you can't you say well the D. H.. Isn't good enough fielding so that's a law you know if you're saying the closer as a failed starter yeah well I. It's still a category there that that I look at Edgar Martinez and what he did and I think we are all in agreement that hitting a baseball's the toughest thing to do when all the sports he was great at hitting a baseball you know frank. Thomas played in the field but he wasn't a good fielder there guys ice who've been out there. Maybe you shouldn't be out there but they had to be out. There and I look at Edgar Martinez. All I know is an I told the story when everybody on that Mariners team it felt like an all of those big names with Ken Griffey junior with Randy Johnson with Jay Buehner when they came over to me and I was in Baltimore at the batting cage and they said why don't you guys on Sportscenter Give Edgar more love. He didn't ask for it. They did and that told me an awful lot about what he meant to them how they respected him and I don't think anybody has a problem that Edgar Martinez is going into the hall of fame not at all. I don't there's always this perception may have been more like media fans and players players that in the eighties nineties the person who's The D.. H. Wasn't a real baseball player who was like ninety percent of a real baseball player like he was such a liability and defense that they had to just hide him somewhere even though he hit well there's always that percentage like well. He's not one hundred percent of baseball. It changed a little bit when Paul Molitor who was a very good second baseman became a D. H. for Toronto when they won the world series but you know you go back to Don bailer Iran Bloomberg the I D age. I think we look at at the D._A.. Is a guy who he's going to get his hack. Big Papi not good in the field but you still have that weapon there that he was a great hitter and you got him into the lineup. Yes C.. D. H. is like the guy who can't play first base anymore. You would on you had high to bed defensive player there wow now we can't even have analysis put him in D. H.. And you know the thing about Marianna Rivera is he did have one pitch but his ability to have that ball move in the location of it. You know hitters. If if you tell them what's coming you would think that they would do well. That's how great that one pitch was and mo- would share that information with other pitchers not necessarily on his own team C._c._C. Bath you benefited from some tutelage with Marianne Rivera but but you had mo who would help if you ask Mo- would help and but nobody mastered that pitch like he did I remember years and years ago we had Paul O'Neil on a show the Yankees and you asked about Rivera said well. If you're a hitter you go up thinking this first pitch is going to be a strike so if I don't swinger this I'm O- one so takes you out of your game of being patient and he said that's how Mariano Rivera messed with people's at the first pitch was guaranteed strike he. You're still know exactly where it's going to be. Yes at somebody had said to forget who was I. I wish I could remember because at it always stuck with me but they said that Maryono through a really heavy ball and they described it like even when you made contact it was like hitting a bowling ball and that's it just didn't go anywhere and I thought that was such an interesting to describe. I don't know if it was Sean. Casey see who may have said that but I do remember somebody I think it was from M._l._b.. Network who said it but there's something about that that you know you're throwing that ball adjust when you hit it. It's not going. He gave up to home runs in postseason in his postseason career. He faced fi over five hundred batters. He gave up to home runs but when you think of Mo- you can also think of a couple of things that sold off base it by Luiz Gonzalez where the diamondbacks beat him and when the red sox came back against him when Dave Roberts was on first base mos on the mound so he's he's had he's had great moments. He's had dominating moments but when I say Gimme the one moment with Marianna Rivera what what is that one moment with Mary on Rivera and it might be that little blooper that sawed off base it by Luiz Gonzalez that allow Arizona win the world series Yes mclovin by you mentioned that Mariners Lineup and editor how how did you get through <hes> Ken Griffey Junior Alex Rodriguez J. Buner Edgar Martinez. I'm amazed when you mentioned that they never really wanted the highest level. Did they know they came close. They came close. You know pulling. I'm watching that hit in the world series curve Luis Gonzalez diamondbacks. He flares it off like the midway point of the Bat. It's one of the softer hits of all time it just kind of gets enough air to get over the second baseman and shortstop. There's no power on the pitch. It's almost like look like it's going to be a AW. That's what Rivera do he would have these pitches that they would run in on you run away from you and it was one pitch and but you go back and you'll like Eric Gonyea member Gonyea with the dodgers was unbelievable as a closer Oser at a few years they blew out his arm and then you know there were steroid allegations attached to him as well but can you be one of the great pitchers of all time if you're not good enough to be a starting pitcher. John smoltz was a great starting pitcher sure and a great closer. They're not many John smoltz's in that's why smoltz's in the hall of fame but Mo was not a great starter and he turned out to be maybe the greatest reliever of all time and I feel a little bit bad is strange as this is going a sound for lease Smith because I've been saying that Lee Smith is a hall of Famer Lee Smith old school closer come in what do you want me to do. What do you need to do? I'm not on any pitch count. What do you want me? Let me go two innings and Lee Smith was a great closer but you're going with Marianna Rivera and then all of a sudden. You're going to match his numbers with your numbers because we don't have relievers who go in at the same time. This is the first time that's ever happened and Lee Smith stands alone with. Whose numbers as a hall of Famer but then he put him up against Marianna Rivera then it's not fair yes? Is it fair to say Mariano. Rivera is the greatest closer of all time pretty fair yeah okay. Would you rather have his career Greg. Mattis's maddox is a very high Dan pitcher bunch of CY youngs not the greatest pitcher of all time but he's in the conversation of great pitchers of all time. I'd rather have Maddux's career is a close close it depends on. Do you want to be the greatest close the best at your the best the best at your position Matic's had three hundred and fifty wins. How many CY youngs did he have four in a row now? He didn't win like Marianna Rivera did but I would rather the guy who went out there and was pitching seven or eight innings not just one inning yeah mclovin. I'd go Maryono for the rings like that was my reaction yeah by the way yeah if you're talking about your career and you're talking about how many rings you have have. It's all part of the same conversation I think it would probably say yeah but they both one did get one. He didn't go without but they were that he was a disappointment postseason. Yes that's one of the first thing you figure him in play up but Mary owner Rivera if you look at those two moments against the red sox and against Arizona he failed yeah for two yeah I would I'd go with <hes> mclovin on taken Rivera just maddox as great as that accomplishment was and the cy youngs and everything he still grouped in with a whole bunch of great all-time time pitchers to be the very best what you do too and the extra rings okay but if I said you could be Edgar Martinez. Maybe the greatest D. H.. Of all time or maybe I make it big PAPI. Maybe he's the best h of all time he won he has rings or would you rather be Ken. Griffey Junior Ken Griffey junior didn't win yeah but he's Ken Griffey Junior <hes> he was for ten years I he was an unbelievable achievable player he was the face of the sporty didn't win right. Big Big PAPI might be the greatest h of all time and he won championships so I'm just countering what you're saying. Well Ken Griffey's got like that Bryce Harper thing where he's wildly popular and not the most effective player like he was. That was the first nine years of Ken Griffey's junior career is spotless power average field and then a susie turned thirty one he became a good baseball player where he got injured. Yeah Fritzy as arrogant or egotistical is it may seem but I'll put it out there and I think mclovin is kind of Ludington it when you hear a certain name if that automatically excites you and that's an automatic hall of fame and that's the one that at some point represented the sport was one of those few when I hear Edgar Martinez you know it's not the same as hearing Ken Griffey junior so I just you know Griffey's like wow griffey don't even think about the talking about the greatest d. h.. Of all time and a guy who won because you said Hey mo one and he's the greatest closer of all time <hes> yes see some of that though like without is just talking about his starpower younger juniors a star. He's you know bryce Harper Right Bryce Harper's star but he's not the best player yeah. It's eight seven seven three D._p.. Show email address DP Dan Patrick dot com.

Maybe one of these days, I will play Pebble Beach, but I was out there about twelve years, or so, I was a bridesmaid, no wedding and played around of golf in the area and just said to myself, I got to get out there and see, but, this course looks like so when out there stood there at the I t walked around a little bit got the lay of the land, and it is it is flat out. Gorgeous. And if you play anywhere along that coast, it's incredible. So beautiful country that Cannistraro out there covering the term at the US Open, and we'll get his take coming up in the one o'clock hour. All right. Those are the guests in terms of topics fee to call in on. I'm gonna talk more about this. But one is about this. If you want a microcosm, a small sample here. Of where the Mets and Yankees, both art. The states of the teams. In two thousand nineteen there's sort of in my mind, there's a wonderful little nugget. Right now this week. The Yankees just made a trade this weekend with the Seattle Mariners for a thirty six year old back. They got Edwin Encarnacion they, they're going to it's going to cost them about four million dollars in salary. And they gave up a low end prospect, someone named Quon, thin who. By the way, the Yankees picked up in a trade with the same Mariners. Just if he couple years ago. What is it a year ago? And I guess the Mariners likes this prospect, and are happy to have him back. So the Yankees flip a prospect. Ended up with thirty six year old Edwin Encarnacion who is leading the American League in home runs. And you know, it's kind of an all star caliber, type d h fat impact back. Expiring contract doesn't cost you a lot in terms of out years, you're not paying for past performance of anybody. It costs you very little. And you get the American League leader. In home runs to insert into your light up. The Mets also brought in a thirty six year old bat in a trade with the Seattle Mariners this season this off seasons winter and that was. We were told the big reason casinos was going to be an impact pet in the middle of the Mets lineup because the Mets needed an impact bat in the middle of that lineup. So canot is going to be that. And though the big part of the trade was going to be, Edwin d as one of the best closers in baseball young closer in his prime. Controllable, Edwin DS. And what did the Mets do? With that train. The Mets took on years of the thirty six year old Robinson Keno coming off of a PD suspension ears of him. And even if Seattle's paying part of that contract, the Mets are still paying about fifteen million bucks a year on it. And. Well, I actually do think that Diaz is a very good relief pitcher. He is he's he's, he's not having a great. He's had a bad few weeks. Not having a superb season the way he did last year. I think he'll be fine. But. You do not. You do not trade. Two of your top five prospects. Two of the top five prospects in your system. You do not do that. For relief pitcher. Other than Marianna Rivera relief pitchers. Closers. It's very difficult. To be consistent as a relief pitcher year after year season after season doesn't happen that often. Players are not like Marianne Rivera. And so the only way you trade high-end prospect talent, like the Mets gave up for relief pitcher, it has to be a really unusual situation. If you're the Chicago Cubs. And you have one hundred and eight year curse to break. And you have a team that has shown it is a playoff caliber World Series, contending team. And you think the last piece we need to win the World Series is an elite closer. And so you trade gleyber Torres to the Yankees four oldest Chapman, foreign elite closer. Because you say yourself it is worth it if we win a World Series and you're the cubs and you go on to win the World Series that very season. And you break your hundred and eight year year curse. Okay. I get it. That's the scenario. Sure. Go ahead. Trade for relief pitcher trade elite prospects for relief pitcher. I get it. I'm good with that. But did anyone think? That the Mets were one elite closer away from being a World Series favorite. I don't think there was anybody who thought that. You don't trade for a relief to your top prospect for the Mets. Do the Yankees do not. The Yankees basically found some change in the couch. Cushion and trade for thirty six year old impact back a lot better than the thirty six year olds impact back that the Mets cut. Guy, he's actually super valuable. They got a better thirty six year old bat. And, and the Mets have Robinson who also, by the way, I actually thought he'd be fine this season. I felt the problem with canot would happen next year and the year after I didn't think he would be awful this year. But even in the best case scenario, I didn't see how this trade the problem. The thing that bothered me about it. And when I look at the Mets, and look, Edwin, Encarnacion could slip in shower and twisted his ankle tomorrow. And this is maybe it doesn't work out and one thin could be the answer to some trivia question years from now, maybe he turns out to be elite in a few years, who knows. But I won't sick and guess that if it happens because the strategy was smart. And even if this deal with the Mets and Mariners some had sort of a World Series. But even if canot had a decent year this year, and Edwin had a very good year this year. I wouldn't have mattered to me. In terms of the strategy, the strategy still would have been wrong don't trade elite talent in the off season for a relief pitcher, you don't go chasing that they're more fungible than that. There are more inconsistent than that. If you wanna trade to elite top prospects in your system. Two of your top five in your system. Go ahead and do it. But then get back a high potential major league ready position player who's going to be in your lineup. Every day you go. Get that guy. Okay. All right. I can live with that. Sure, trade prospects for that. I'm good with that two teams on different life cycles in their building and rebuilding. Okay. I can live with that. But not this. The strategy wasn't smart. And the more I thought about it. When I look at these to play thirty six year old bats Mets and Yankees, a microcosm for where both of those teams are in twenty nineteen. The difference in strategy. I realized he gives you nothing any of you ask for it. But if you wanna have a little look into the inner workings of my mind. I realize that, that's why I'm so offended absolutely offended by what the Mets did this off season in making that deal because it is poor strategy. It's not smart strategy. And if you wanna know here we are on Father's Day, part of what made me think of that, because happy Father's Day to all the dads. I've told through the years, a lot of a lot of stories about my father. But if you ever wanted to know the answer, how is it that, you know, I've got this passionate and interested in in sports. I am my, my dad's creation. It is my dad. You know, the person who not only brought me up as a Mets fan and giants fan and took me two games. But was one of the kindest, smartest highest integrity, best people. He's the best person I've ever met the best person. My mom my brother ever met, and sadly, he left us. When I was fourteen I had fourteen years of just more love from this incredible man than most people get a lot longer, but wouldn't things my dad did impart to me. From the time I was little. We didn't just watch a game. It was a strategy session. It's just how his mind worked, and he would break it down. We would sit there at a giants game and I was ten years old. And we're calling plays we're guessing what the play is going to be thinking one step ahead, I playing girls junior high school basketball, and even sitting next to me and. And we'd watch a game and you break down and have me watch the point guard position. And what this girl was doing. That's just how my dad was strategy matters to me, it always has, and it clearly doesn't seem to matter to the Mets. Ten twenty time for an update with.

"Congratulations to the raptors for winning the championship. But listen, if Kevin Durant plays and Klay Thompson doesn't rip up his knee tours ACL last night. He may not play next year either. Then this series is over in five. It's a complete whiteout. All right. So, yeah. If and if candy nuts and butts and whatever else you got in there. But the bottom line is this, the raptors are lucky. If the warriors are healthy. The raptors get dusted. No question about it. They struggled six games to beat a beleaguered Golden State team. Okay. I mean, Golden State on the floor last night. At one time, had guy named looney a guy named bell. Let's see a guy named Joe. What was his name? Jeruga drave. Whatever his name was. Sure. Yeah. I forget the guy's name the guy never plays. Okay. No, I will give Toronto credit because their defense on Steph curry last night was phenomenal. I mean but to me that we'll call it a tainted championship 'cause it's not tainted in terms of bad calls, and that sort of thing. But there's no question. Toronto is lucky. All right. So they're not the best team in the NBA. They didn't prove they were the they played a half a warriors team a half. Look. I'm the warrior fan. In series like this, where I have no rooting interest. I root for good games and the last two games were off the charts. Phenomenal. The warriors are completely inspiring. All right. I mean what they did the last two games. And if that goes to a game seven I don't care where you play you can play the game at Toronto. You could play the game on the moon and the warriors win the game. So Toronto is lucky and they win their first NBA championship. Here's something else. I do not understand. I do not understand unless you have a hatred for the warriors. And again, if you're a Suns fan, I get that. And I totally understand. I don't know how anybody could root for a Canadian team over an American team. And look, I don't like Steve Kerr at all. His politics. Ranted, it's not because he's a leftist. It's Cassisa simpleton leftist. Everything is racist, sexist, and homo phobic people like that really make me ill. So I'm not a fantasy Kerr at all. At all. And I know he went to you may but whatever. Okay. To me, the warriors have the heart of a champion even in defeat. The last two games were spectacular. I can't root for a khanate now. I could obviously, like let's say the Yankees were playing Iran. I would move for Iran. I'm flat out serious. I'm not joking if the Yankees are playing Iran in the World Series. I would I would absolutely refer Iran. I really now flout, I'm flat out serious and I'm not joking him. Not being condescending nor listen at the Miami. Dolphins played ISIS go ice. Flat out serious. I'm not kidding. So I do get that. But other than that. I do not understand with rare exception, which I wanna give you. I am ardently rooting against this awful, not awful in terms of talent, awful American women's soccer team, go Chile. I am I'm gonna win. I'm gonna fly Chilean flag on Sunday. I am rooting against this team. I do not like this team. I do not like the players. The they're talking about not going to the White House, even the last time in American athlete was giving me their hate speech about it was Lindsey Vaughn, and she proceeded in a preliminary to fall and hurt herself. And she didn't even medal. And I am flat out rooting against this. I have. No. I, I hate soccer. I really don't care that much. Soccer should be banned in this country. It's a waste of time. And by the way, you'll hear all of these misnomers about how soccer's up and coming and soccer's, the fastest grow, you'll hear the same arguments. I've heard for fifty years, soccer is not fastest growing. Soccer's, only the most popular country in the world because the world can't afford athletic equipment believe me, if they could afford baseball bats, and gloves and all that stuff, or Deepak ads and shoulder pads or hockey sticks and soccer would be like, you know, would be the same as judo, nobody would care. Okay. So I'm not falling. I've been hearing the same tripe for fifty years. Soccer socks. I hate it. It's a violent played by the biggest thugs in front of the biggest thugs. All right. You lucky he'll look you can get through soccer game without somebody being murdered in the stands. It's just awful. Okay. Awful it's awful. You walk through an American stadium soccer and you don't even understand the language right? It's not up and coming. It's not growing. It's a joke now, having said that the attitude is this team is deplorable. And I hope they lose now right now. We're only in the round Robin round. So we're not at the single elimination, and once we get there, I hope the Americans, get their ass kicked hard. So I have no problem rooting against the Americans in that because I don't like this. I don't like their people have personalities. I don't care that they beat Thailand by thirteen by the way on the ties quit wining. All right. Stop somebody thirteen goals in soccer game. I mean, did you see by the way, right? Did you? You know your average soccer game as you lucky if you get fifteen shots on goal combined? Yeah. Did you see the shots on goal in this game? Now, the American team had, I think it was thirty nine the tide team had to. It was thirteen and you could play a month not score thirteen goals. Thirteen nothing. I've no problem. Blowing them out rubbing it in their face to bed. Then tell the tight team to get better. Okay. Honestly, I mean, what stop somebody quit crying. Crying and soccer, isn't it? Others. I guess there is there is crying and soccer isn't there. There is crying and flopping this American team. Honestly, they make my stomach curl. What would you say now agreeing you're saying, okay, yeah, I can't Ruth allocating, on though, I, we'll get Allen just let me get to he'll be quickly Dow, and then I've got one other thing I wanna riff on, let's go to our. L. What's going on, buddy? Well, our oh. Go ahead say what you gotta say doing Bruce. All I'd say we with you two hundred percent. I used to say that if Osama bin put together a baseball team and played the Yankees, I show up at a turban. That's how I eight. Call four thing. L. Thanks for the call. I hate the, the fashion going buddy put the. Bruce. KO. Show up with a turban. Really like these second basement Mustafa Ali. Well, they go to. Oh, yeah. I'm not kidding. If the played Iran I'm all in on the Iranian. I'm I'm out serious. I'm not joking at all. Goes for the Yankees dolphins Phillies fires, especially you throw Georgetown mix, and frankly, I don't hate them as much. But the university of Florida about the fish sticks. No. I don't hate the fish sticks used to hate the fish sticks with a that's the island that's guaranteed by the way, when I was a kid. That's that with the Yankees of today, but covering them as I did. When I got into the sports media. You know, you get to know somebody's guys, by the way, when it comes to the Yankees, I don't hate the players. I love Derek Jeter. My love Marianne Rivera. Few others. I mean, you know, even a couple, but the uniform hate everybody put that uniform on you dirty. Okay. Period, the last thing I want a refund. Here is the US open. As a major fan of golf and guy who fancies himself as a golfer, even though I suck. You cannot hold a United States Open at a golf course. That's played in the regular circuit. We play tournament every year at Pebble Beach, and playing United States Open first off the US open has to be the toughest test of golf, it should be designed that if you play lights out before days, you could shoot eight under combined right now the leaders are projected to be twenty under ladies and gentlemen, when the PGA championship is played at a tougher golf course in the United States Open. We got a big problem. Second. You should never play a golf. Course that you play in the regular circuit like they do at Pebble Beach. Familiarity is one of the greatest assets. And friends of these golfers, I would recommend to whomever runs this thing, the US. Runs. The US open, not the PGA. No more majors at regular at golf courses that are played on the regular circuit. Okay. That's just wouldn't hold a major at the Scottsdale, TPC not that you would because it's not designed. But I'm just saying. Because they play that at the waste management. Outrage, ladies and gentlemen. It's an outrage when you'll project shoot twenty under and by the way. Nobody's gonna shoot twenty under. Okay. But here's the thing you play at Pebble.

"Up in the next hour. We gotta get into. Everyone's done some version of it. But this whole fire fast revival in pop culture has actually signaled to me a very disturbing trend in documentary filmmaking and one that I think we need to nip in the bud now like fire fast and the phenomenon that surrounded it in its own, right? If you haven't heard of it it is a failed festival attempt. That was really a large con job by everyone involved hooting jar rule who managed to escape through all this which is incredible. Like the list of names that go through this. But a disturbing trend that has come for me that I can't stand for we'll get to in just a little bit. But we will go now to the shell Pennzoil performance line where we welcoming Gordon Damer from ESPN ninety eight point seven FM in New York. You hear him every Monday through Friday taken over right here at five o'clock hour on the east coast. Gordon, we appreciate the time as always. And when we talk to you on Tuesday, we were talking about the possibility of a unanimous vote the first unanimous vote in the major league baseball hall of fame. Four Marianna Rivera the greatest closer in the history of baseball. We get to Thursday, and it actually happened against all odds, Gordon, and it seemed like a no brainer. But we knew going into this that it hardly ever is with the hall of fame voters for baseball. Yeah. I mean, I'll be honest with you. I was shocked. I don't know if I said to you at the time, but I didn't see any chance that it would actually end up happening because to get in this day and age day and age to get four hundred and twenty-five people do agree on anything is is hard to do. So to get the baseball writers to all agree. That Marian Rivera deserves to go in on the first ballot that there was no columnist or radio talk show host. They gave into the devil on the shoulder. That would be that one guy that would put the no vote into just for column or radio bit is kind of impressive. I gotta be honest to me. I'm surprised that there was not one single person that would put their own well-being ahead of the greater cause. But that's what ends up happening. Look, obviously anybody who does not vote for Marianne Rivera. Does not deserve to have a vote for the hall of fame. But there's been plenty of cases of that before. I remember Ken Griffey junior. A few years back came up three or four votes shy. There's plenty of great players before Marianna the deserve to go in unanimously. So that that I guess is the biggest surprise for the finally the first guy who's able to get it done. We heard a lot about the power of public. Shame. That comes with social media in a day and age where the voters ballots are public. And so we would know exactly who was using this for a baiter who is doing this just to be contrarian. And so that certainly part of it. But you're right Marianne, very is the perfect case for someone who deserves to be on any one who has thinking sound minds baseball hall of fame ballot. The question now for me, Gordon, and I wanna ask you this. Because once we got through this hurdle. The next one in my mind was the PD players when you talk about Roger Roger Clemens Barry Bonds, and the like the next wave where the hall of fame voters are going to have to continue to decide do they hold this against this group. And so another name that got brought up. Pete rose. So I'd asked you either neither or both Pete Rose or the steroid era hall of fame candidates actually wind up getting into the hall of fame. I think that I think the main ones you could talk about our Clements in bonds. I think Clemens in bonds still have a better case that Pete Rose does I mean at this point, it seems like the only way that the Pete Rose is going to get is the Commissioner changes his mind. And while there was some talk. I guess it was a couple years ago that Manfred when he first came on the job that maybe that was something that he was gonna push for. It doesn't really seem like there's been really any juice behind that since then I don't know how much turnover there is in the baseball writers from year to year. But certainly if in the next three years, there is a sizable change in the amount of writers that, you know, the younger writers generally have a more forgiving outlook on the the steroid stuff. I would think that it's sixty percent of the vote now, and maybe picking up some as they get closer to being at the end of the ten year run. I would think that both. Bonds and Clemens had a better chance. I don't think that any three of them are going to get in anytime soon, though, I last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app talking to Gordon Damer on the shell Pennzoil performance line from ninety eight point seven ESPN in New York, Derrick jeeter also up next year and a guy who I think offi reputation certainly is a guy that now that the floodgates are open could be in line for a similar sort of entrance to Mariana Rivera. Do you think player wise that Derek Jeter falls into that category of a guy who would be deserving of a unanimous selection of the hall of fame? I think probably Rivera has a little bit of a better case. Just simply because I think we're all in agreement. He's the best closer of all time. Right. Like, I don't think that anybody even the biggest Derrick jeeter fan. I don't think they believe that he's the shortstop of all time. I think there's a lot of great attributes that Derek Jeter, and clearly if you're voting for the hall of fame just the fact that he has over three thousand hits would put him automatically. It's the hall of fame never mind all the winning all the years all the hits. And all those other things. But I think that Rivera probably has the better case. And the fact that it had never happened before. I would think that jeeter still going to get a very very high total whether or not he goes in unanimously, I would probably doubt it. But again, I doubted whether Rivera was so maybe I'm not the best judge. No, I listen at this point. We're all kind of wandering around in the dark on this one. I did have to appreciate though because obviously Derek Jeters hall of fame cases, ironclad at this point. Mr. he was the poster for the Yankee for so many years, but it's sort of character foil for so long the villain that lay in New York and Alex Rodriguez who I think on the outside is certainly enjoyed a bit of a glow up perception wise for a lot of other people around New York, how is Alex Rodriguez viewed at this point he was on. I hate yesterday basically saying he was hoping these guys you got Clemens and bonds would get in because he knows it makes his case better. But what's the perception around eight and Alex Rodriguez who's been contrite since two thousand fourteen suspension, but still obviously, you know, admitted to using and making that a. Of his legacy. It's been very surprising considering where he was not that long ago, you know, for the for a season long suspension suing the the Yankees is an organization over things. So it is very surprising that he is now apparently back on good terms with the organization, and he really has done a lot of work to kind of remake his reputation whether or not that's enough though to sway the baseball writers. I would not expect. So, but it'll be interesting to see what happens in that last year that both bonds and Clemens around the on the ballot. It doesn't look like there's anybody. They put a lot of people in the hall of fame here. The last few years, it doesn't seem like outside of jeeter next year that there's any real lock. So as we move further along into the ten year run of both bonds and Clemens. I think that data will have to be what happens first before you can have any conversation at all about Alex Rodriguez ever getting in because while we all have our suspicions bonds even admitted not knowingly using something they never tested positive. They were never suspended for a full season. Like a rod was. So I think that that note that obstacle has to be overcome first before Iraq can even think about hall of fame only about thirty seconds left here, Gordon, but a big night for James harden in the garden last night. What's it mean that we have to gain the stats to say in the garden instead of against the Knicks when guys go off and blast this team while it's all about messaging, right? I mean, at this point the fact that the rockets almost lost the next might be even more impressive than what what James harden was able to do last night. The Knicks had not one too many. I think they've won one game at home since thanksgiving. So that's not a great track record. No, not a reading endorsement for rockets team that certainly beat up at this point. But an exciting night in the garden. Nonetheless for everyone that was there for that performance. Gordon, always a pleasure man time catch Gordon Damer on ninety eight point seven ESPN in New York. You're coming up right at five o'clock eastern coming up next here who are the players coaches and owners they're going to shape the NFL over the next several years.

"All this other stuff responsibility. It's the one guy now interesting thing to me is that if other guys are in that area. Now of a sudden the eyes of the other officials are going to be involved. You see what I'm saying? And it's one of the reasons why the side judge who's backed by the pile on is the one going incomplete he doesn't see really see the play the ball hit the ground. He's watching the ball. Come through the cylinder of him watching his number one receiver. He's not watching the receivers who another words you. And I watch a game we see in all. Twenty two we all twenty two players, and we watch it from that standpoint. The officials on the field all have their individual responsibilities. And that's why this yet become so complicated. And why it's so hard fees officials sometimes to miss a call because they are fixated on what their responsibility is not on what somebody else's responsibility or the other officials now they like to eat listen guy. You just ruined our whole reputation here. But they may not have seen it because they were they were fixated on what they were saying like I was doing my job. I was watching my part of the field you weren't. And now we're on the crew that screwed everything up. And now, I got people harassing me and my hotel room I be upset with that guy. Just so people understand how it kind of works in the communication that goes on between the third team on the field and a third team on the field is the officiating crew now there was at one angle here. CBS sports network. Do they had where it had from was from the sideline you could see the down judge that was standing there next to the down marker. And then when they played the highlight, I could've sworn I saw the guy's head turn. But maybe he was looking in the middle of the field and not right to his right? So that's probably I mean one guy. There you go the boomer investigative report, we have boiled it down. And you talk to people you got sources you were knocking on doors. You were making phone calls to watch this. Look if you're watching. They can see his third and ten right? It is body. He's turning and he's he may not be looking there. He made me in looking somewhere else. He may have gotten confused in other words, he did not see the plug bad time to get it wasn't like he saw the play. It didn't throw the flag. He didn't see the play. According to my sources because he misread the play misread his responsibility. Wow. It's amazing. How that one guy misreading the play getting confused could change the course of NFL history. And that's why Sean Payton was yelling at that guy. You could see in another frame later on that Sean Payton an official standing right in front of me. And the officials not even giving them the time of day. Yeah. Because I guess that official feels like that was not his call. When in actuality, according to people that I've spoken to that was his call. Now that is the case. And I believe that you spoke to the right people, and everybody's gonna know I just wanted to get the facts, right? And is that guy you think they put them somewhere else you go up to the? This is going to be the last game these guys going to officiate anyway 'cause there's a whole new crew for the for the Super Bowl. Maybe that guy will be calling the hall of famers for the pro football fade now. Get know look players make mistakes coach like Sean Payton made a huge mistake by not running the ball on first down. It's funny. It's like d- Ford made a mistake. And this guy made this mistake. Stakes referees make mistakes. It is what it is. Just I wanted to get to the bottom as the why it happened and how it happened and who was responsible. That's all Dan Encarta at what's going on. Dan. Hey, good morning. Thanks for taking my call again. Yeah. Yes, sir. Dan. What are you got brother? I I heard what you said in regards to Metallica and Mariana. No. And I am not conflicted. I actually knew for a very long time that Mariano does not listening to Metallica. He didn't even pick intersection men as his intro song. That was just pick for him, you know, years ago. You have to want to thing if you can only remember one thing in your life Marianne Rivera's career or Metallica and going to Metallica shows, which one would you pick? What have you got more enjoyment out of? Marianas career. See that's great telling you, man. Telling you right now is either the greatest Yankee of all time there Dan from quarterback. No. I don't think he's the greatest Yankee of all time by you know, he's he's right up there in the top three or top five greatest. Yankees of all time. So top top five where do you put him on number four number three number two. That's hard to say. I'd really have to give that some thought. I can't just answered out on the wire. You should know this. I mean, you're you're you're a Yankee fan. Throw you make over there at the stadium. They get closer to the field. I mean, come on Dan could Don Larsen strikeout Aaron judge. Yeah. Of course. Don Larson Larson now or is it Aaron judge now. But I mean, I'll cry judge when he was twelve. Okay. All right. I would ask you a question real quick about the chiefs in the patch game you guys both know that in the playoffs. They the rest of the unwritten rule let the guys play unless something big happens. It can change the outcome of the game. Like the Rams. The saints Rams game show the rest didn't tell me Ford to move back when he's lined up the neutral zone, but boomer. Did they really need to call that penalty against someone? He had no impact on that play causing Brady to throw the intersection. Let him. No, man. I mean, that's a clear role. It's easy to lineup onsides for crying out loud. I mean, I'm not throwing the flag. Plus the by the way, you know, the just so you understand the patriots ran ninety seven offensive plays ninety seven. Yeah. D- Fordline side on one of them. Incredible right really is ninety seven offense. The result of that you'd end up an air step onto the chiefs lined up on offense Fifty-three place. Yeah. They lined up only had fifty three plays on offense. And they scored thirty one points, by the way, and they all essentially they had three interceptions. Fifty four doesn't turn doesn't lineup offside. Let's fired a defense coordinator ask you this. The fact that d Ford lineup offsides gave him an extra step perhaps Brady got rid of the ball and extras half a second early forcing him to throw it high to bounce off the thing. Gronk you mean, it's on the thing. He whistle that the gronk is ten yards away from him went off his hands. And it was intercepted off the thing. It's still it's mind boggling and the further you get away from it. The more noise, you you are because of it kind of like what happened in the ram saints like the farther. I get away from that. It's like dang it. The damn wrong team is in the Super Bowl, or what are you gonna do? Right nothing. Now, the players on the Rams and the coaching staff. Rams did nothing wrong. They just play by the same roles by everybody else. This guy missed the call. They're going to the Super Bowl. You don't want to in any way, shape or form disparage their season, they had a great season and Sean McVeigh's a tremendous young coach. But you also want it to be right. You want it to feel right? Yeah. And that's I think fans want it to be right. I think coaches want it to be consistent. And in this case, I think everybody feels everybody watching the game anyway and don't sit here and tell me about you know, Jared Goff getting a face mask, non call with Sean McVay did. Yes, I don't care about that. I mean, those things happen all throughout the game. This actually happened when the game was in the balance, but could Sean McVay strikeout Willie Mays is really what I know. Yeah. Maybe that's a Paul. We should have see what people say about that poll could Sean McVay boy wonder strikeout Willie Mays and that will not met solely. Willie made centers prime willingness fully mates for talking about eight seven seven three three seven. On the fan..

"This evening at six pm. Correct. Melby network out. Yup. Yup. And they say, oh, Marianne Rivera could be the first unanimous voter getting all votes, right? There was one kind of tool guy who said he wasn't going to vote for refraining from voting lately, I believe so then is that really one hundred percent. One hundred percent of the people that voted, and then I know you're gonna think I'm being stupid here. This is a real no, I think that a lot. Or are you could answer. Yeah. Babe Ruth didn't get one hundred percent of votes. Not nor did Mickey Mantle nor did Kim Griffey junior. That's visa closest I believe nine nine hundred. Right. Right. Exactly. Because there are those idiots out there that believe no one should get out of the fish up, but back in Babe Ruth era. There were like twelve guys playing baseball guys. But he had a home runs more than teams at home runs. Don't know. And there was like two newspapers in the country. They probably didn't believe that. He was doing what he was doing because there was no internet. How is a guy? Like right about that a guy in internet guy in Cleveland house. He ever watching Babe Ruth play. There's no TV. Listening radio, I suppose, that's where all these fake Babe Ruth stories came from. Well, I mean, they are detailed. We don't know that we don't know anything. They've Ruth wants hit a ball over nineteen neighborhoods says who will no one ever said back saw it. He did live in an orphanage. We do know that. We did hear about the orphanage. He was a fat guy playing ball guess slam. Cigarettes runs we have photos, although he was hitting home runs, and you get like in my little league, we played in the back of Colonia junior high school, and there were no fences. So you hit a ball in the gap was a home run. Well, we've done this before you believe that the theory is that home runs when Babe Ruth I started when he bounced over the fence were considered home runs. So does this mean that Marianna were varies the greatest ballplayer of all time? It does not he's gotten more votes than Ken Griffey junior. And baby just means he'll be the first one where everybody votes for him that voted. That's all it means. Okay. Disclosure of all time greatest baseball player. I would say, no. Ken Griffey junior. So the best I've ever seen is that right? Yes. I would say so is he the greatest Yankee though of all time.
